“The biggest voter suppression mechanism in American politics is Hillary Clinton’s personality”

To know her is to loathe her.

For the entire 40 years of Hillary Clinton’s public life, one thing has been consistent: The less people see of her, the more popular she is.

The Deplorables of Arkansas in the late ’70s, were not thrilled by the snooty feminist from Chicago who refused to take her husband’s name—so she was hidden at the Rose Law Firm where money could be funneled to the Clintons through her supposed legal prowess (a continuing theme).

Before Obamacare became an epithet, the term “HillaryCare” was used to stop the Clinton socialized medicine plan of the 1990s. And if you think that Hillary’s involvement in it didn’t have as much to do with popular rejection of it as its content did, then you weren’t there.

Sure, she won in New York after the Republicans went through a candidate shuffle when Giuliani declined to run (due to personal issues that seem tame today)—but hey, that was New York.

Hillary was the inevitable president in 2008—until people had to contemplate four years of the screech that Rush Limbaugh wickedly said reminded men of their ex-wives, over the dulcet tones of Barack Obama.

And so it goes. When Hillary is in the background, her popularity rises. When she is front and center, it goes down.

Hillary Clinton is right, however, when she says: “I take responsibility for all my decisions, but that’s not why I lost.”

That is correct. You lost because of who you are, not what you did.

Such a nasty woman. If Trump only ever said one perfectly true thing in his entire life, that’s it.

  1. I think I’ve said it here before but the biggest lie the left ever told themselves was that knee-slapper about the “Clinton Magic.” They created a myth during the early years of the Clinton presidency that “the Clintons” – plural, both of them – were master politicians, deal-makers, game-changers or whatever the buzzword of the day is.

    It was all wishful thinking. Desperate, wishful thinking.

    The new feminists wanted – SO BADLY – to believe that Hillary was some magical super-woman co-president that they refused to admit to themselves what was obvious to anybody who was not fully in-the-tank for the Clintons (and probably a lot who WERE in the tank too) which is that Hillary was NEVER a great – or even a GOOD – politician, that she was shrill, unlikeable, not very nice, and that she only got where she was by riding on Bill’s coat tails (which is pretty much the polar opposite of what the feminist myth said she did.)

    The truth they didn’t want to admit was that the “Clinton Magic” was in fact the BILL Clinton magic – Hillary didn’t have so much as a milligram of it.

    The only election Hillary ever won was the safe senate seat that was wrapped up and handed to her on a silver platter. When she had to actually fight on her own, she lost every time because you simply can’t make someone into a good politician by wishful thinking, browbeating the opposition or creating a magical fantasy world where your candidate is something that she clearly isn’t. And what Hillary isn’t, is likeable.

    And that IMO is what doomed her. Ultimately, a politician has to be likeable. Now that doesn’t mean a politician won’t have haters or detractors – of course he or she will have them. But Hillary’s problem was that even her SUPPORTERS didn’t like her.

    Lying to outsiders is what politicians do, almost all of them. But lying to yourself is a sure recipe for defeat because while you may choose (through willful blindness) to not to see your own weaknesses, your opponents damn sure will see them and will point them out to others.
